Word to the wise: anyone who tells you that they already know exactly what they're packing for Thanksgiving break is a flat-out liar. Or, like, a really good planner and someone we could all stand to learn something from. Either way, packing for a four-day weekend can be harder than packing for a two-week trip—because if you're going away for a legit long-vacay, you at least have an excuse to stow away half of everything you own.

For a shorter stay-over (and one that revolves around eating, at that), it's way better to condense your clothes into a bag or two and be comfy—which translates into cutting back on shoes and purses. *GASP* I know, I know. The HORROR. Let's be honest though: you're praahbably not going to clomp around the kitchen in those strappy suede stilettos you just bought. And do you really need to bring a giant tote when you'll be parked on the couch in a food coma for most of the weekend anyway? That's what I thought. ~Tough Love~

So, in an effort to help guide you through your inevitable procrastination, we went ahead and put together an entire Thanksgiving wardrobe that's all ready to be crammed into a carry-on.

Maybe you're meeting up with friends for lunch. Maybe you're headed to that one place in town where you ALWAYS run into EVERYBODY. Or maybe you just need an excuse to venture outside and change out of your PJs. No matter what you're doing during the day, being at home shouldn't be an excuse to look as lazy as you feel. Besides, no one has to know that you're actually wearing jeggings.

Karen Walker, Uniqlo

Between past partnerships with brands like Lulu Guiness and most recently, Suno, Uniqlo is NO stranger to some seriously awesome collabs. That being said, rarely does fashion news send such a collective gasp throughout the MTV Style HQ as Uniqlo's most recent recruit, Karen Walker. If you read this blog, then you're already well-acquainted with the fact that our love for the New Zealand designer runs deep. We're talking far beyond her consistently adorable printed pants, quirky blouses, and statement sunglasses, into potentially disastrous "recreate her dramatic runway beauty look" territory (*shudder*). Anyway, now that she's teamed up with the Japanese retailer on a wallet-friendly collection of tees, channeling Walker's effortlessly cool vibe has never been easier.

Well, there's no denying it. Overalls are BACK! And these denim dungarees haven't only returned in full force, they've become a major fashion trend, popping up on the runways at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Agnes B, and Jason Wu, as well as on celebs like the current overall MVP, Alexa Chung. Before you roll your eyes at us, like, "Duh, Alexa Chung can wear ANYTHING and look good," hold up— we were skeptical at first, too. But after doing some seriously in-depth research (otherwise known as cruising our favorite online stores and stalking their selection), we've realized that overalls are actually way easier to pull off than they appear. You don't necessarily HAVE to go full-on farmer status, channel *NSync, or even rock flashy leather to get in on the look...there are tons of ways to reach a happy medium with style secrets like classic black, '70s silhouettes, or even prints. See the long and short of it here!

Overalls were originally designed for blue collar workers way back in 19th century, thanks to their durable fabric and functional cut. Needless to say, these onesies have come a long, long way since their humble beginnings on the farms and in factories. This gorgeous image of Kate Moss sporting hers should be reason enough to give this trend a spin; but if that's not enough to convince you of their long-staying '90s popularity, these basic blues also made pit stops throughout the decade on stars like TLC, Destiny's Child, and even the Olsens. Despite the fact that Man Repeller has given them her seal of approval, ironically enough, the 21st century iteration of the look has a decidedly flattering appeal. Think Jane Birkin-inspired trousers, sleek colorways, and a slimmer leg. OR you could always go the Rihanna for River Island route with two-toned separates...

Uniqlo shows off its print game on the runway and in its new Uniqlo collab.

Matching is SO overrated. At least that's the case with Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty, the founders of New York label Suno. Since its inception back in 2008, the brand has won a well-deserved cult following for its mishmash of fabrics, colors, and exotic patterns, all of which are sourced everywhere from Kenya to Peru to its home base in Manhattan. It's easy to swoon over the eye-popping goods at Fashion Week and on stars like Solange, but it's decidedly tougher to work up the spare change to snag a Suno original for our own personal wardrobes. Until now, that is, because Max and Erin are the latest additions to Uniqlo's Designer Invitation Project and are officially joining forces with the mega-retailer on a capsule of pattern-perfect designs. Filled with floral motifs and stripes that take cues from "Japanese Americana" (as well as their own runway pieces, as evidenced above), the collection is a total prints PARTY, and everyone's closet is invited. So who's in!?

Danny Brown uniqlo

The creative geniuses over at Uniqlo have already given us some really cute clothes (and a case of hair envy!) to look forward to for spring 2013, but the Japanese retailer isn't finished quite yet. It's serving up another helping of style, this time starring the one and only Danny Brown. The rapper and former Mark McNairy model is part of the brand's UT TruckShop, a seasonal promotion that takes Uniqlo's rad new UT tees on the road... literally. Danny will join fellow faces like Miss Info and Curtis Kulig at pop-up events, performances and t-shirt stores around New York City this April. Before all THAT kicks off (his performance is this weekend!), check out Danny's new campaign video. His is the first of Uniqlo's "Life in a Minute" clips, which give us an intimate peek inside each artist's life in a mere 60 seconds. Watch it below, and find out more about the campaign here!

Uniqlo Spring 2013.

Google "Chloe Norgaard" and prepared to be bombarded with a technicolor rainbow wave of MAJOR HAIR ENVY. The model, DJ and music festival fixture has been working her My Little Pony locks like no other the past few months, showing them off for Terry Richardson, Dossier, and Harper's Bazaar. Now the native New Yorker's doing her thing for Uniqlo in the Japanese clothing giant's new Spring 2013 campaign, bringing a burst of much-needed candy color into the winter blahs.

Leandra Medine is repelling in fall plaids for Uniqlo.

If anyone has figured out how to have it all, it's Leandra Medine. The 24 year old blogger behind The Man Repeller has a successful online brand, partnerships galore, AND she just tied the knot (in an incredible dress, we might add). When we heard that Leandra was going to be joining Tavi Gevinson and Cyndi Lauper as a model for Uniqlo, we were beyond excited--the Japanese basics retailer is definitely not what we think of when we think Medine, as her style everything besides basic, but then we remembered that everyone has to wear jeans, right? When Fashionista interviewed Medine about the campaign, she revealed a collaboration vetting strategy that we can totally get behind: "I always and only ever do collaborations with brands that I would work with even if there was no compensation involved," Medine said, adding, "and Uniqlo is one of my favorite, favorite brands." Super cool in style AND in ethics

Lulu Guinness Uniqlo

In case you didn't hear, one of the most DARLING collabs to date just hit stores yesterday: Lulu Guinness designed a limited-edition collection of tees for UNIQLO. Yes, it's true, the saucy British designer behind the oh-so-famous lip clutch made vintage-inspired tees we can actually afford. The mostly black, red, and white T-shirts all come in just under $20 (YUS) and feature everything from sparkly cat eye sunglasses to just, well, straight-up cats. To celebrate the launch of the collection, UNIQLO created a Facebook and Twitter contest to find out who has the most unusual/sweetest/most hilarious location for their first kiss. The winner will receive a tee from the collab AND *GASP* the coveted Red Perspex Lips Clutch. To enter, tweet or Facebook the location of your first kiss with the hash tag #UTlovesLULU, and you're done! The contest ends Sunday, April 29, but, um, we've got some online shopping to do until then. BRB!

Tavi Gevinson and Cyndi Lauper for UNIQLO.

This colorful Uniqlo campaign could not be coming at a better time. With the climbing temperatures and sunny skies, we are definitely coming down with a case of SPRING FEVER! While I suppose this candy-hued campaign starring Rookie editor Tavi Gevinson and Cyndi Lauper isn't curing it per se (OK, it's totally amplifying it), we couldn't be more welcome to see bold flashes of color and slip into a pair of these saturated skinnies. The two bold ladies, along with a grip of models, show their *achem* True Colors for the Japanese clothing brand's colored jeans AND the recently released Orla Kiely collab!

No doubt you Little Monsters have already nailed the "watch it, learn the dance, load the video to YouTube, repeat" routine on Lady Gaga's music video for "'Yoü And I," which has shown up scattered like a trillion Easter eggs all over the interwebz over the past 48 hours. You've probably already gone and pored over all the envy-making FASHUN rampant in every frame.

You were all, "Where can I get a pair of those heels? Or that hat? Or ZOINKS, is that the custom leather HARNESS I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR?!??" Well, great news for you. Not only do we have aaaaall the fashion credits (thanks to Gaga fashion director Nicola Formichetti), but we've nabbed an EXTENSIVE, super exclusive interview and studio tour with Gaga's leather designer Zana Bayne, courtesy of our main man, Rory Rockmore.

Soooooooooooooooo, last Saturday I had the pleasure of sitting down with one of the baddest bitches in leather, Miss Zana Bayne, creator and HBIC of Zana Bayne Leather. Who is Zana Bayne?

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
